Author's Abstract

  1. A lot of people sent me this link to an article in Aeon1 by physicist George Ellis, with some of them telling me that his piece deals the death blow to determinism and pumps life into the idea of free will.
  2. It doesn’t — not by a long shot. And anyone who has such a take doesn’t understand either determinism or Ellis’s arguments. For once you understand them, you see that they’re invalidated by a big fallacy.
